Carolyn Cosby, founder of Concerned Maine Families, says homosexuals should be e
Carolyn Cosby, founder of Concerned Maine Families, says homosexuals should be excluded from protection under Maine's human rights law because they are wealthy, and she claims that there is very little homophobic violence. Steven Wessler of the Maine Attorney General's Office notes that of 496 hate-crime and bias-incident reports filed with his office since October 1992, 27 percent involved homosexuals. Cosby is angry with Michael Heath of the Christian Civic League of Maine and Paul Madore of the Coalition to End Special Rights, saying they are trying to steal her campaign of tolerance and turn it into an orgy of hate. Details, related editorial on Question 1, the referendum initiated by CMF.
